    New Delhi, Nov 10: Love for photos, especially, selfies makes people go to any extent ignorant of threats to life. The newly inaugurated Signature bridge in the national capital has become a new spot to take quirky selfies.

    'No selfie zones' should be introduced at the bridge to avoid untoward incidents. In fact, recently, researchers at the US National Library of Medicine recommended that 'no selfie zones' should be introduced at dangerous spots to reduce deaths.

    Since then, the Delhi government had plans to build another parallel wide bridge nearby to alleviate traffic congestion. By the end of 1998, the Delhi government finalised the draft plan for this bridge. The bridge was inaugurated on 4 November 2018 by the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal with the aim to ease the burgeoning traffic congestion on the existing Wazirabad bridge.
